A Little Hack To Help You Be Grateful Today

be grateful

When was the last time you looked up at the stars?

This may sound corny, but seriously, do you even remember when you last looked up there?

When I look up, it completely grounds me. It reminds me that I’m just a little speck of energy in this inconceivably vast universe.

It also reminds me that I don’t know sh*t, and I’m lucky to be alive.

We get so caught up in what we have to do, that we forget to appreciate the gift of life

And it’s easy to fall into this trap time and time again. After all, we’re only human right? Whatever that actually means…

So here’s a little challenge. Make a commitment to go outside each night and look up at the stars. Even if it’s just for 10 seconds, do it, and do it daily. Remind yourself of how big this world is and how grateful you are to be a part of it.

We’re cutting this post short because we want to hear from you. We want to know your number one tip on how to be grateful. Maybe it’s meditation, affirmations, journaling, or spending time with your family.

Whatever it is, leave a comment below so we can get a conversation going, and inspire everyone to be grateful today.

  1. Sorry, I forgot to answer the question–we try to view the meteor showers when they are visible. If you never have spread out a blanket, laid flat on you back and looked up at the flashes as they come at the Earth, you are missing out. Totally awesome, and free!

  2. Hello to M & M!
    Here is one of my gratitude favourites, from the Dali Lama:
    Everyday, think as you wake up
    Today, I am fortunate to have woken up!
    I am alive! I have a precious human life!
    I am not going to waste it.

    I am going to use my energies to develop myself
    to expand my heart out to others to achieve
    enlightenment for the benefit of all beings.

    I am going to have kind thoughts towards others.
    I am not going to get angry or think badly about others
    I am going to benefit others as much as I can.

  3. Everytime I say “I love you” to my husband or my son, I feel instantly grateful. I’ve recently noticed and named this feeling and now I’m filled with gratitude everyday 🙂

  4. Somewhere I read in an article that certain peoples wake up each morning and look at their hands. They are grateful for their hands because their hands earn their living – I love this. I am grateful for my hands each morning – they allow me to garden, they allow me to paint. They are incredible hands.

  5. Tell someone why you are grateful to know them. Anyone. The people closest to you who support you everyday, the co-worker that makes you laugh, or even the Starbucks guy that remembers your name and order. Find an opportunity to say it and it makes you feel it more.

    I think of all the suffering in the world- it’s absence in my life makes me truly grateful.
